Buddy was relinquished by his owner because she couldn't reliably housebreak him. It's unclear what methods were tried and failed, but ideally Buddy should probably have a doggie door when his owner is home, and a yard to be confined in when his owner is not at home. She was probably wrong on several factors, in our opinion. She had stated he isn't good with other dogs, but he's partnered with a female Dobie presently, and she is the boss. Perhaps he's reactive on leash; we'll know more about that going forward. Buddy is said to be good with cats and obedience trained with the usual commands. He's not destructive either, which is somewhat uncommon for an 18-month-old (as of January, 2019) dog.
